Bookplate of the Day

Just looking through some recent acquisitions, so I thought I'd post one Im currently researching for everyone to enjoy.  It doesn't seem this library exists anymore as a separate entity, but it may have been folded into another one at the University of Toronto.  If anyone knows for sure, however, please drop me a comment or an email and let me know!

The actual statue of King Alfred that this bookplate illustrates sits in the town square in Winchester, England.  I've had the opportunity to see it firsthand, and it's an impressive figure indeed.

I'll be back on the weekend with a new post.  Until next time...
